    @ Fremont Abbey, 8pm show, 7pm doors

    Music | Poetry | Visual | Collaboration

     

    The Round features three songwriters sharing the stage, sometimes with a backing band. They alternate with a slam poet while one or two visual artists create live throughout the show and paintings are available for silent auction afterwards.  Audience members sit quietly a few feet away from a low stage, all together to create a unique evening of high quality & collaborative arts. Look forward to a unique finale on most shows, and often some crowd participation.  Musicians can only play the Seattle Round once a year, so it’s always a unique mix.  The Round has featured major acts like Damien Jurado, Nikkita Oliver, Mary Lambert, David Bazan, Haley Heynderickx, Buddy Wakefield, and many more.  www.TheRound.org

    4/13 Cry Cry Cry

    Cry Cry Cry (Reunion Tour) – SOLD OUT
    *Standing room tickets are available*

     

    Presented by Abbey Arts & 

    Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell and Dar Williams revive their celebrated folk-pop collaboration for their first performances in nineteen years. The band recorded their eponymous debut in 1998 for Razor & Tie Records followed by a sold-out nationwide tour including New York’s Town Hall. The collection of twelve mostly cover songs was really a tribute to fellow singer-songwriters. A mainstay on radio during the late 1990s and early 2000s, the album ranked fourth among AAA radio station’s most played records in 1999 and continued in high rotation well into the 2000s. The record was consistently praised by the press: The Washington Post raved, “Cry Cry Cry illustrates the advantages of taking the best works of contemporary folk musicians and fleshing them out with lovely, three-part harmonies” and the New York Times cheered for the trio’s “gorgeous harmonies.” Entertainment Weekly wrote “Cry Cry Cry’s purity of heart and sound is spirit renewing.”

    April 13, 2018  @St. Mark’s Cathedral, 8p show, 6:45pm doors open (approximate)

    A unique open concert experience, quiet picnics welcome. Seating available, including chairs, benches, and lots of floor space in front of and around the stage. Cushions recommended. See ticketing page for full details.
